This is a recording of another phone conversation—but this time
it's with fellow W.A. intern Pam Shoemaker, not the Skype Lady.
I again used Nicecast and Audio Hijack Pro (both Mac apps),
plus the Mac version of Audacity, and did a lot more editing in
this one.

2007-11-03 Phone Conversation

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-11-04 02:08

This is the first of two Week 2 projects involving recording and editing
a 2-way phone conversation. I used Nicecast, Audio Hijack Pro, and
Audacity. I'm not totally satisfied with the results, but I'm pleased
that I figured out the settings for Nicecast.

Assignment 3

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-11-03 18:05

No editing done in Audacity. All the fun was doing the streaming this week. I should have tried to hijack the real audio feed as well, but I didn't think about it until later. I'm still having difficulties making sure I have the id tags correct. I opened the mp3 in Audacity and opened changed info in the  metadata editor and exported the mp3, but still when I open the file in itunes I see the Nicecast title/tag.

That was intense, so I did it again (actually 4 or 5 times )

Note: Make sure to follow Lee Barber's screencast
for ­proper Nicecast settings for headphones and ignore mine. Watch mine if you want to see the overall process.

Sound Card Requirements

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-11-03 16:54

I have summarized some resources about sound card requirements on my course notes 2.3 metalist:


After assessing my existing hardware and looking at some blog entries, I noticed that this issue has not

received much attention, even though the sound card is the central workhorse in webcasting.

A Day of Learning

Webcast Academy - Fri, 2007-11-02 22:02

I ran out on my lunch hour today to get a new headset microphone.  I went with the Altec Lansing USB & analog.  I thought it would work better than my Logitech desktop microphone.  However, I never did get it to work...  Thinking back on it now, I wonder if there was a setting in my Control Panel that I needed to change.  Anyhow, I switched back to my desktop usb microphone.

Two-way Telephony Recording (Mac)

Webcast Academy - Tue, 2007-10-30 20:35

The Plugging Continues . . . .

As I said in the meeting on 2007-10-28, I'm limping along with
my two-way telephony recording. I've tried it a number of times
with both Nicecast and Audio Hijack Pro on my Mac, but the­
results have not been acceptable; although I read through two
tutorials, I think I must have made a basic error in configuration.

"There must be more to life than this." Struggling to get the sound right

Webcast Academy - Mon, 2007-10-29 10:04

Sorry I can't upload Freddy Mercury singing,


1.  I've spent (wasted?) hours playing around with two micros, Logitech USB  and non-USB Typhoon. Typhoon sounds great.

I've changed all the variables ion various permutations , but have nothing very final to report.

2.  I decided to delete and reinstall Simple Cast and VAC. That was a MISTAKE! New versions do not work at all, and throw up

  messages (in German, no point in screenshots) :

CORRECTION! URL for mp3, second webcast

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-10-28 07:34


Revised URL for Foodbridges 2 recording (mp3)


mp3 Foodbridges 2


Thanks for pointing this out, Dennis "Phoenix" Oliver. I see the mistake. I altered the URL here, in this text box, and not by pressing the link button.


Just clicked from this page (above) and it worked.

This is an identical recording to Jim's  So you don't need to listen to both.

Susan and I won't be able to join you on Sunday, October 28.  Here is our Skype call recording.  We talked about our experience using Audacity, Audio Repeater, and Skype.  Today was a good day!

It works!

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-10-28 00:24

Thanks to Jose's video I was able to record a sample conversation with the Skype lady.  I'm going to document everything here for future reference:

Properties for playback and recording were both set to C-media wave device.

Audio repeater settings: in- headset mic   out- C-media wave device

Audacity preferences were both C-media

Skype options were both C-media

Week 2

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-10-27 23:46
I am not sure which setting is off- I start audio repeater and hear it on my computer speakers not my headset.  When I change settings to hear in my headset nothing records.  What am I doing wrong?  I have listened and viewed all information on webcastacademy's site.  It IS frustrating.  I have been working on this for the past 3 days.  I do get a recording when the Skype lady talks via the microphone.  When I mute the microphone I do not get any sound from the Skype lady=(  I have played with different settings.  Please help!

Week 2 frustration

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-10-27 21:48

I have spent about 4 hours trying to get a recording from the Skype test call lady recorded.

I have succeeded in getting better sound on Audacity.

Oh and I am using Vista. My sticking point seems to be what do I need to have for  the recording in on Audacity.

I think I have tried every setting and I can't get sounds off of Skype recorded.


I have looked everywhere for info.

derrallg Audio Assignment for Week #2

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-10-27 17:12

I think I have the correct path:

1.    Set up Nicecast so it joins the Skype feed with the usb headphone mike feed,
2.    Set up Audio hijack pro to record, installed hijack plugin so I don't have to restart Skype, and recorded call
3. Opened in Audacity (1.25 instead of 1.33 because of crashing problem), export as mp3 with bitrate set to 64.

4. Note had to re-export mp3 in audacity 1.33 in order to have the sampling rate be 44khz, 1.25 seems to export a stereo mix at 44khz and makes it 22khz or incompatible with Flash player.
